Sassy Girls

11 Jan

Some little girls are feeling pretty sassy with being stuck in the barnyard.

Ostara and Pretzel

There’s lots of playful fighting among them.  But my three girls who were in the garage are rather demanding about going into the milk room to eat every time I go through the door.

Ostara and Pretzel wanting me to go let them in.

It’s actually rather annoying. I am still fine with them coming in.

Heidi and Ostara fighting over one bowl–two more places to eat from.

I just wish they’d wait to be invited.  I’m pretty sure Zora doesn’t want back in there.

Zora

She is such a bratopotamus!  and a sassy girl.

Munching

9 Jan

Now that we’re deep in winter and the goats are all getting room service, I probably won’t be able to take another picture of a critter not munching on hay.

I put it out there in a lot of different places to make sure everyone has a pile to eat from.

On both sides of the barn and by the garage–lots of piles

I don’t want the old ones or young ones to have a hard time eating.

I’m not sure what’s going on here because goats are not known for sharing food.

The llamas like their hay too.

Even Ms. Goose likes to nibble on the hay.

Well, at least they’re cute with full mouths.

Because we still have about two months before they go back out to pasture.

Other Happenings Around the Farm

5 Jan

My nephew brought their Christmas tree to the goats.  They thought it was a fabulous tree-t.

The next day, I had to turn it over because the only green left was on the bottom.

It didn’t last long.

I took advantage of the nice weather over break and gave everyone another round of copper.  It was time.  They hadn’t had it since the first part of November.

Sisters Rosie and Purl

The first day, I had a lot of them swarming the milk room.  It gets hard to control the chaos when they all want in.

Cupid (some day I should wash the hoof prints off the window)

I am impressed that my evil plan worked.  I grabbed Zora while she was eating and drug her to the milk room.

She was too mad to even try eating any sweet feed, but she got her copper and she got her hooves trimmed.

I did not try to kill you, Zora. Quit telling tales.

It wasn’t so traumatic for her that I couldn’t pet her again by the next day.  She really is a brat.

On the first, I decided I couldn’t put off scooping any  longer.

I am way too old to be tossing bales through and then me climbing over the Dutch door.  So I chipped away and got it cleared enough that I could get me and a bale through it.

The girls were interested in what I was doing.  Not that they care how I get the hay out as long as I feed them.

Another thing I did over break was spend a lot of time in the kitchen.  I used the bags of vegetables I froze in the fall and canned a lot more vegetable stock.

I did a total of ten quarts and thirteen pints. Hopefully, it will last me until next fall.
